Recapping 2019

I had many great horsey experiences in 2019!  I am really pleased with how the year went overall; nothing is ever perfect, but both horses are sound, happy, and healthy, which is really what matters to me.

Some of my 2019 goals were met easily or with lots of hard work, and a few of them were utter fails haha.  C'est la vie! Let's recap!

Happy, health, sound
Both mares are doing well in this regard!  Dreamy will be 29 this year, and while she definitely shows signs of her age at times, she overall looks and acts much younger than she really is!  Ellie has really matured this year, filling out as well as mentally becoming more comfortable in her own skin.  As she will be eight this year, I feel like we have moved through the baby phase.

Continue lessons with Beth and Babette
This goal was met and then some!  I took almost weekly dressage lessons with Beth and monthly jump lessons with Babette. Thanks to the Morgan Dressage Association scholarship, I was also able to attend two clini…

USDF Rider Performance Award

Yay!  Our first award for 2010!  Yay Dreamy!  I wonder how many other Standardbreds have earned this honor??  :D









Yes, I blocked out my address on the letter above.  Sure, you can probably find me easily enough if you wanted to, but publishing my address doesn't seem smart.  :)

Any ideas on where to put the patch?  LOL!  I do not currently own any jackets that would match the red and blue.....maybe I should get a new fleece coat?  XD  Putting it on a saddle pad seems odd.  Hmmmmm......maybe I will just leave it here in my office, next to my husband's "Biggest Bucks in Maine Club" patch......ROFLMAO!  :D

  1. Congratulations on your award. I have read of a Standardbred who was supposed to have done dressage at the Prix St George level but cannot find any information on him except on Standardbred web sites. Here is one of those web pages.

    I agree with not putting the cloth badge on anything at the moment, because one day you are going to think "I know exactly where to put that cloth badge".
